Hiii! I am Chrissie Duffield-Bittner — a registered dietitian, in school for integrative nutrition at IIN, personal trainer, farmer’s daughter and excited to have you visit my blog! I am sure you want to find out what I am all about, unless you know me from my old blog or from in person. Whomever you are, I hope you feel right at home here and can learn a BITT of nutrition from me.
The BITT part of my blog is based off my new last name BITTner, Andy and I got married April 22, 2017, Earth Day, on my family’s farm. Located on our wedding site is a small (400 sq ft) cabin that my dad built. It is also where my husband proposed to me, where we got married, and where we lived (#tinyhomeliving) for 9 months. Everything about my wedding was personalized, like these Earth Day centerpieces I painted, planted, and organized based on the table name. Each table was named a certain herb or flower. So many more details, I will need to make a post about it!
A take away from my wedding blurb above, is that I am very passionate, detail orientated, and type A personality (thanks dad!). Type A personality has some downfalls, like having to be a perfectionist, which I am working on DAILY! A benefit of type A is having a strong passion for something you care about. For me that is health and wellness —mind, body, and spirit. Which is why I am a registered dietitian, personal trainer, and now continuing my education in integrative nutrition.
This blog is meant to provide healthy tips and recipes that can inspire anyone to gain a healthier lifestyle. Through this blog, I would love to incorporate meet-ups where other like-minded people can gather, eat healthy food or do an activity together. Let’s get to know each other! Feel free to reach out to me via comments, social media, or email. I love getting feedback, hearing from my followers, listening to your stories, and getting to know all of you!
